Um, no.

Booting from a cdrom is not new.

Having 2g worth of OS and applications available to you from a 700mb cdrom 
IS new, as is being able to customize the config and your personal 
environment, and have those changes persist, plus having persistent storage 
of /home/$user.

Just take a look, OK?
